Round Card

Hello! Today I’m sharing a very quick and easy round shaped card.

I used leftover Distress inks what I had on my palette to watercolor the Flora Background by Simon Says Stamp stamped with Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I didn’t leave the golden ink fully dry, which gave a nice and even glittery coat. It’s almost impossible to capture it on the pictures but it is better seen in my process video.

I went for a circle shaped card with a mirrored frame and I also added the sentiment “Paljon Onnea” which is “Congrats” in Finnish. Added few more extra details and the card was done.

You can see the video here:

With this project I am entering Jehkotar Craft Challenge # 58 Bingo rivi: Jotain leimattua – PyΓΆreÀÀ muotoa – VesivΓ€rit.

Penguins on Vacation

Hello! These little penguins decided to spend their summer vacation on the beach: having some yummy ice cream, building sand castles, swimming and surfung and just having fun.

For this slimline card I used three Clearly Besotted stamp sets:

  • All Four Seasons
  • Scene It Seasons
  • Scene It More

I stamped the two beach images at the two opposite sides of my card panel. Then I stamped all of the penguins and the other small images. I joined the first two stamped images together by just drawing the shore line and creating an island using a black pen . I put masks on all and used distress inks for the sand and the sky. Once that was done, I colored all with alcohol markers and added some more details to the sand and the sea. I used snow marker for the sea foam, Glossy Accents on some of the accessories and clear Wink of Stella.

Once all was dry, I matted my card panel onto kraft cardstock and adhered all onto my card base.

Penguins on their summer vacation.

I think I’ll be back with more penguin activities cards πŸ™‚

Thank you for stopping by and have a fun day!

CCC July Blog Hop

Hi! It’s again time for the Collected Crafty Collabs (CCC) hop πŸ™‚ The theme for July is Outdoors and/or Patterned Paper. I really love the idea of digging through my (not so big) stash and finding those supplies that are left unloved for quite some time.

The stamp set that I chose to use is Party Pals from Avery Elle and it’s one of my first ones. I haven’t used it for over an year! Patterened paper is something that I struggle with in card making. I have mainly 12×12 and 8×8 paper packs which are great for my mini albums but not really for cards… I don’t know how to incorporate them plus I love to color. So, I went on Pinterest and looked through the hundreds of card sketches but none of them seemed to be “The One” that I would want to use. Since this didn’t help I started looking through my stash and realized that I have papers from a cardmaking magazine that I never used. So I picked two patterns that were kinda going well together. I stamped the panda and the kitty holding the banner and masked them so I can do a simple ink blending for my outdoor scene. I didn’t get a good blend tho so I blame the cardstock πŸ˜€ It is Transotype – Perfect Coloring Paper, first time using it for ink blending and have used it just few times for coloring (not really liking it). I used Copic markers to color the stamped images. For the assembly of the card I didn’t do anything fancy, just glued all down flat. As finishing touches I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the noses and over the letters of the banner and some iridescent star confetti here and there.

CCC June Blog Hop

Hi friends! I am a member of the Collected Crafty Collabs (CCC) group which is a small group of bloggers who come together for monthly challenges. This month’s theme is Critters and/or Stencils.

For my card I chose to use two mini stamp sets from Lawn Fawn: “So Jelly” and “Seahorsin’ Around” and a Dutch Doobadoo’s stencil “Triangle Wave”. I used a wreath builder template and stamped four times the octopus and one of the seahorses to create a circle. Then, I stamped the star in the center but a bit off side so that I can add a sentiment later. I masked them all (didn’t bother masking the legs of the octopuses) and ink blended Distress ink in Tumbled Glass all over the card panel. After that I applied Salty Ocean Distress ink through the stencil.

For the coloring I picked alcohol markers in bright and happy colors: pinks and purples for the octopuses, blues and greens for the seahorses and yellows for the star. I added details with Stardust and White Gelly Roll pens, a little bit of sparke with Clear Wink of Stella (I can’t have a card without sparkle πŸ˜€ ) and Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard. And I almost forgot to add the sentiment. Stamped “You’re a star” in black and heat embossed in clear. I trimmed a bit the card front on each side so it is a bit smaller than my card base (4×4) and before adhering all together, I also ink blended Cracked Pistachio Distress ink just around the edges.

So hard to capture the glittery details…

Thank you so much for stopping by! I am so excited to see what my crafty friends create. You should have come from Charlotte and your NEXT STOP on the hop is Lounon .

Have a great day!

Another Coffee Cup

Hello! I have another coffee cup card to share using the third digital stamp from the Coffee Queen stamp set by Graciellie Design. I had previously colored the cup with my Nuvo alcohol markers and had put generous amount of Glossy Accents all over so that the cup looks like porcelain. This was a last minute card so I used a scrap piece of patterned paper on which I stamped the sentiment (in Finnish) ‘Happy Nameday’. Background is dry embossed with stencil and there is a little bit of ink blending.

Have a great weekend!

Tea or Coffee?

Hi friends! It’s again time for a new Team Tiny video hop πŸ™‚ ! This month’s theme is Tea Time. I used the Graciellie Design digital stamp set called Coffee Queen.

No-line Watercolor Spring Scene

Hi friends! I recently joined a group of crafty content creators called Team Tiny, where we are having monthly video hops. For this month the theme was Spring April Showers. I am so ready for the spring but it keeps snowing in my part of the world. So this was the perfect time to create a lovely spring scene with green trees, grass and bushes and of course cherry blossoms. But in the middle of all this sits the adorable Bunny πŸ™‚

You can check my video for all the details:
